I know everybody says that they would date someone less attractive than themselves if their personality was good, but I'm wondering how many people have actually clearly done this before.
I know it's hard to determine if you're "more attractive" than someone of the opposite gender, but I'm really talking about cases where it's clear that you could do better in terms of looks and you decided not to.
How did it turn out? Did you end up having higher expectations of other things from him/her?

I dated someone less attractive than me, I didn't know I was attractive until my co-workers were all telling me "he's too ugly for you, you can do so much better than him" (looks wise).
But at the time I didn't care how he looked, I liked him before he liked me and one day out of nowhere he just asked for my number and then he told me he always thought I was cute.
He worked with my sister in a pharmacy 2 years ago and I used to go to her store to pick her up and I would see him every time I'd get there. I was too shy to talk to him, but he was the one who made a move and we dated for 8 months. He wasn't the sweet and caring person I had met anymore, he turned into a big a**hole later.
The relationship was good, we had great sexual attraction and never had trouble going out, seeing each other or talking even. We always told each other if something was bothering us. But one awful day it all crashed into tiny little pieces...He broke me physically, I wasn't the sweet girl anymore and because of him I was left cynical and bitter...
So that's that.
